Hearings Set for Obama's Trade Change Agent

(Note: Hearing has been postponed until Monday March 9, 2009, at 5:00 p.m.)

The Senate Finance Committee posted official notice that the hearing for President Obama's choice to head the Office of the United States Trade Representative (USTR) will being at 3pm on Thursday, March 5th.

Kirk on the trail

This will be fair trader' first in-depth look at former Dallas, TX Mayor and USTR nominee Ron Kirk's personal views on trade policy, and to hear how he plans to implement the litany of reforms committed to by President Obama on the campaign trail.

You can join in spirit what's sure to be an swinging hoppin' viewing party here at Global Trade Watch - either on cable, or by tuning in online at C-SPAN.org for all the fun.

I sure hope they're planning to devote some extra bandwidth to this programming. If just a small fraction of our friends who voted for fair trade last November decide to show up to the online auxiliary viewing part, it'll be quite the crowd!
